Elizabeth (Tyson) Vaughan Papers, 1816-1958
Collection of manuscripts of Elise Tyson Vaughan of Hamilton House in South Berwick, Maine
The Elizabeth (Tyson) Vaughan (1871-1949) papers contain material belonging to Vaughan, a friend of author Sarah Orne Jewett, who lived in Hamilton House in South Berwick, Maine, and members of her family (not all of whom lived in Hamilton House).
The majority of the collection is comprised of correspondence by Vaughan's mother and George Tyson's (1831-1881) first wife Sarah (Anthony) Tyson (1842-1873) and documents her personal and social life in New Bedford, Mass., and Shanghai, China, during the nineteenth century.
Although many items in this collection are not directly related to the lives of Elizabeth (Tyson) Vaughan or her stepmother, Emily Tyson, at Hamilton House, they document an important part of the family's history from the perspective of a nineteenth-century American woman.
